The Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani starrer Malang hit the screens on Friday and the mystery thriller has been receiving both positive and average reviews from the audience. Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to share the first-day box-office numbers, and well, they weren't as big as expected. The film collected Rs. 6.71 crore on Day 1.
Comparing Malang with Aditya Roy Kapur's other movies, the film earned more than Aashiqui 2. Adarsh also said that second-day business might be affected due to Delhi assembly elections.
#Malang is decent on Day 1... Should’ve grossed higher given its genre... National multiplexes contribute 50%+ of Day 1 biz... Mass circuits low... Needs to show more than normal jump on Day 2, though biz in #Delhi will be limited... Fri ₹ 6.71 cr. #India biz.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) February 8, 2020
